Many a man proclaims his own steadfast love, but a faithful man who can find?

—Proverbs 20:6

Our kids have many heroes these days. They look up to celebrities, entertainers, athletes, and members of the military. 

But do you know who today’s real heroes are? I’ll tell you. The real heroes of our day are faithful men who are determined to leave a legacy of faith for their families.

Now I thank God for women who love Jesus. But I want to speak directly to men right now, especially in relationship to how you raise your children. It’s not uncommon for men to focus their life mission on their careers or on earning income. Society trains us to pursue these kinds of goals. And, of course, you and I need to provide for our families.

But men, if you make your life mission to live a godly life for the sake of your children, then your influence will last long beyond the lives of your children to touch generations!

You see, our spiritual lives are much like a relay race in which one generation passes the baton of faith to the next generation, and so on.

Make it your purpose in life to be a man who passes on a legacy of faith and love to your children just as if you were anchoring a race for eternity, because you are!

THE REAL HEROES OF OUR DAY ARE FAITHFUL MEN WHO ARE DETERMINED TO LEAVE A LEGACY OF FAITH FOR THEIR FAMILIES.
